Designer Collections

Spellbinders® has partnered with a select group of Licensed Design Partners, some of the industry’s most popular designers. We've created collections inspired by our design partners’ artistic vision. We believe each designer has a unique aesthetic and paper crafting point of view which will appeal to a variety of styles. The Licensed Designer Collections are sure to inspire your creativity.


Celebra’tions™ by Richard Garay

Richard has enjoyed being in the paper crafting industry for nearly two decades. In his career, he had the opportunity to be a designer, trendsetter, creative leader, published author and now, the co-founder and president of Journey Blooms. He came into paper crafting because of his passion for people. He was a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) prior to his paper crafting career. It was the art of creative therapy that introduced him into rubber stamping. The outlet for self-expression opened new ideas, not just for his patients but for him as well. “The opportunity to work for amazing companies has been a blessing that I will always be grateful for. Creating new and fresh projects is something I love to do but sharing them is my true passion.”

He and his wife, Gabby, who is co-founder of Journey Blooms, have four boys: Richard who joined the US military to serve our country (many thanks for your dedication and service!), David, Andrew and Matthew.

A Gilded Life by Debbie Murray and Shea Fragoso

Debbie Murray and Shea Fragoso are the mother/daughter team behind the multi-faceted design company “A Gilded Life”. Theirs is a true artistic partnership, and creativity has always been an integral part of the family dynamic. As Shea was growing up, Debbie taught art classes in the community college system, and operated a custom design business and fine art painting studio.

When Shea finished school, they owned gift shops together in Southern California, where Shea was a highly sought after jewelry designer. Her creations appeared in dozens of fashion magazines and often graced the red carpet. They have both designed products for the gift industry, and both have sold pieces to collectors around the world.

They are currently licensed designers for a line of gift and home décor items through Demdaco/Silvestri. They also offer a highly sought-after monthly embellishment club called “The Gilded Girls Stash Society”.
